State police ask hunters to help them sniff out marijuana in the woods
Virginia State Police are looking for marijuana in the woods, and are calling on hunters to help them out. Charles Fishburne reports.
With hunting season in full swing, state police are asking for people to report any suspicious activity they come across in the woods.
Molnar: When hunters are out there, they notice a clearing in the middle of a heavily-wooded area.
State Police Sargeant Tom Molnar.
Molnar: And the chopped trees and holes that are in the ground where the plants once stood. Plastic bottles and pails, as well as shovels, and also random travel paths that lead up to these grow sites.
He says don’t confront anybody in the woods, just report what you see to 1-800-553-DOPE.
Molnar: You know, last year, we took out 35,000 plants throughout the state, which kept millions of dollars out of the hands of drug dealers.
